Utah Educators list Top 10 Books for OCD


A lit of books about OCD that children can read about and relate to:

"Sharon Bascom, a teacher in the Nebo School District, wanted to learn more about children with emotional disturbances. She approached a specialist in educational development, Tina Dyches, who responded with a research assignment for Bascom.

"I told her to investigate books about characters with emotional or behavioral disabilities, then write up a report for me," Dyches said.

However, when Bascom finished her assignment, Dyches didn't want to stop there.

"Together, with my research assistant, we decided to extend the project," Dyches said.

From the research, a top-10 list was created for books portraying characters with obsessive-compulsive disorder. The books were reviewed for reliability and then put into a rating scale developed by Dyches and her colleague, Mary Anne Prater.

The scale determined the artistic and literary quality of the books. It also rates the books on three real-life subjects: character and disability portrayal, social interactions of characters and sibling relationships. The books in Dyches' top 10-list rate high in all areas. The list includes two picture books, three novels, four autobiographies and one self-help book.

Dyches' motivation was to help teachers, school psychologists, social workers and parents to choose appropriate books for children suffering from OCD."
